I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, Dandelion plants were a great source of entertainment. As a kid, I would pull the dandelion plants out of the ground when they turned white, and I would blow on them. Of course, this was a cheap form of entertainment. After all, our generation still played outside and made up crazy outdoor games to keep us entertained instead of indulging in social media and video games.
So, my fondest memory of these plants was having them blow in the wind. I never knew that they were helpful for anything. However, I recently discovered a tea called Roasted Dandelion tea. I had heard from a friend that this herb is good for the kidneys. Therefore, I got on the internet, started researching it, and pulled out my herb books to discover whether it was true.
Indeed, I did find that dandelion is good for the kidneys. However, I also discovered that dandelion is good for the liver, too. The latter was a sweet surprise because I learned that as it improves the liver, it increases bile and can improve skin and eyes. Oddly enough, I had been experiencing some skin problems such as discoloration in certain areas of my face that skin creams couldn’t fix. However, when I started drinking dandelion tea from time to time, it cleared my skin problems.
Another surprising thing about this herb is that the roasted tea I drink is surprisingly tasty. Some herbs may be good for you but taste disgusting. This is not the case with dandelions. It almost tastes like coffee which is one of my favorites that I had to cut back on in recent years.
